I can guarantee you that there’s nothing in this world that you love more than minor league baseball teams love wearing random uniforms throughout the season. Most of these promotional uniforms come with a theme night. There will be some sort of 90s themed uniforms. Or a Star Wars Night uniform where one team is dressed like Darth Vader and the other team is wearing Stormtrooper uniforms even though that doesn’t really make any sense considering they were on the same team. More recently, we’ve seen some Fortnite Night uniforms that I don’t understand because I can’t keep up with that game. I feel like minor league baseball teams wear their actual uniforms for maybe 15% of the season and then the rest of the year, they’re all just promo jerseys.
But on July 7th, the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs will be wearing these Jawns for their 2019 Salute To Philadelphia Celebration. And for the first time in history, I think it’s time for one of these teams to finally adopt a promotional jersey as their primary uniform. Because these things are scorching hot. Quite possibly the sexiest baseball uniform to ever grace the Earth.
The only thing that worries me a little bit is I feel like out of all the sports, baseball fans are going to be the ones who are the most confused about what the word “jawn” means. They’re not going to be able to comprehend that it means pretty much anything. They Venn Diagram between baseball fans and people who use the term are probably just two separate circles. So there will be plenty of confusion at the ballpark on July 7. But that doesn’t change the fact that these uniforms are 5 alarm flames. Almost makes me a little sad that we didn’t get these in our lives until 2019. Just imagine how much quicker the American Revolution would have been over if the boys threw on these uniforms after signing the Declaration of Independence. Shit would have been wrapped up by the end of the weekend.
